Sport Department of the Year (Secondary, HE/FE)
Physical Education at QEHS should inspire all students to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We will provide opportunities to compete in sport in order to develop values such as fairness, respect and teamwork.
All lessons are in line with The National Curriculum.
All lessons at QEHS will focus on:
There are a number of key concepts that underpin the study of PE. Students need to understand these concepts in order to deepen and broaden their knowledge, skills and understanding.
The QEHS PE Department Aims To:
Physical Education (PE)
Pupils should be taught to:
Focus across the Year Groups:
Year 7 – Believing in myself and ensuring social belonging.
Year 8 – Learning to learn, lead and developing growth mindset (Performance*/Participation**).
Year 9 – Building aspirations and developing resilience (Performance*/Participation**).
Year 10 – Believing in myself and ensuring social belonging (Performance*/Participation**).
Year 11 – Making active lifestyle and career choices (Performance*/Participation**).
*Performance – Developing excellence/GCSE Pathway/Lifelong love of physical activity.
** Participation – Maximising participation/Lifelong love of physical activity.
PE and sport have an important role to play in raising standards and narrowing the achievement gap. Research has shown how placing PE and sport at the heart of a broad and balanced curriculum can improve attendance, behaviour and attainment. PE and sport build self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills. PE and sport are also important because they can help build an inclusive society, raise levels of participation in sport after young people leave school and positively affect the health of the nation.
Physical Education at QEHS has three key strands:
As a department we place a huge emphasis on the physical and emotional well-being of our students, as we strive to promote a lifelong love for physical activity. Our primary focus is on the three key strands within our PE curriculum and the Physical, Social and Emotional Well-Being of our students, with the learner at the centre of our model.
